    Hey guys, I'm searching here for a list of optical drives supported under MacOSX.... If anyone could point me to the direction of looking, it'd be a big help. I searched the support page on Apple, but I didn't find anything.

    If noone knows any page showing the list, could anyone tell me if these following drives work with the mac?

    1. Pioneer DVR-110
    2. NEC ND-1300A
    3. Pioneer DVR-109
    4. Sony DW-D30A

    I'm currently looking into purchasing one of those drives for my PowerMac G5 to replace the superdrive that I have. I'd like to have dual layer so when I create my projects in DVD Studio Pro, I'm not limited to just 4.7 Gb.

    If anyone owns one of these drives on their Mac...let me know! Thank you in advance.

    I just stuck a random no-brand CD-RW drive from a PC into a Powermac when it's optical drive died and it worked no problems. I hear it's all luck.

    I think the story is slightly different for DVD-DL than for CD-RW... I think the latter has become so standardized that you should be fine with anything, but the former is a little more iffy....
